Brendan Steele capped off his week at PGA West's Palmer Private with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 to join Charley Hoffman atop the Humana Challenge leaderboard at 21-under 267.
Steele consistently posted sub-69s all week but saved his best for last. He took advantage of all four par 5s, playing them at 4-under on the day. Most of the damage was done prior to reaching the green as he walked off the 18th green with 5.900 strokes gained:tee-to-green. The season-low round of 64 puts Steele in a share of the clubhouse lead, where he will watch the remaining golfers intently. Jan 25 - 5:58 PM

Brendon Steele is a veteran of four Humana Challenges and is back again this week.

Steele has made two of his four cuts in this event, but his T56 in 2013 is the weak highlight. While he's made each of his four cuts in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, this will be his first action since a T37 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to end the 2014 portion of the schedule. A long layover and a poor course history are reason enough to bench him in all but the deepest formats.

Brendan Steele enters the 2014 holiday break ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings.

Steele finished the Fall Series a perfect 4-for-4, collecting 120 FEC points along the way. Entering his fifth full season on the PGA TOUR, he's yet to finish a season with fewer than six top 25s. Consistency is king in fantasy golf and with Steele's number of missed cuts reducing each year on TOUR, he's becoming a more valuable fantasy asset as each season passes.

Brendan Steele carded a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Since we last saw Steele in Vegas, he switched to Wilson irons and utility clubs. They paid immediate dividends at the Country Club of Jackson where he wiped away one bogey with four birdies and signed his card leading the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 3.371. Perhaps Steele should have added a Wilson putter to his bag as well. His strokes gained: putting measured -1.789 at last check.

Brendan Steele makes his fourth journey to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on the heels of a T21 at last week's Open.

Steele is a solid option in any fantasy format this week. In his previous three trips to TPC Summerlin, he has a pair of top-16 finishes. He is growing more established on the PGA TOUR by the month, so his blend of solid course history and steady current form is an attractive one.

Brendan Steele buried a walk-off birdie putt from 27'7" at the par-5 18th hole in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to survive the cut on the number.

Steele was down and up all day en route to an even-par 36-35=71. He traded four birdies with four bogeys and reached the midpoint in 3-over 145. While the final birdie was the most compelling, he also converted attempts from 45'9" and 25'6" at Nos. 9 and 16, respectively. Steele's Playoffs life hinged on that last one, though, as he entered the week ranked 76th in FedExCup points. The heavy lifting has just begun, however, as 80 golfers scored 145 or lower. So, another cut of low 70 and ties will fall once 54 holes are complete. It's the second time in as many weeks that the MDF provision is invoked. Prior to The Barclays, the last time it was needed in the Playoffs was at the 2008 Deutsche Bank Championship.

Brendan Steele returns to favorable venue, TPC Boston, for his third shot at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Steele has earned top 20s in his only two trips to TPC Boston, thanks to seven of his eight rounds going for 69 or better. He enters the week ranked 76th in the FedExCup standings, which means a missed cut just won't cut it if he wants to advance onto the BMW at Cherry Hills next week. Steele has all the tools to contend in a low-scoring shootout, as he's not afraid to post a round of 62, he's already done it twice this season.

The final round of the PGA Championship has been suspended due to heavy rain at 12:53 p.m. ET. Play is set to resume at 2:40 p.m. with the last tee time going off at 4:19 p.m.

This is not a dangerous situation, as there is no lightening in the area, but the amount of rain proved to be more than Valhalla Golf Club could hold. The TNT broadcast has reported that they hope to have players back on the course in as few as 10 minutes, but that appears to be optimistic judging by the pictures of the golf course. They have the squeegees out on the fairways and greens in an attempt to eliminate puddling. We will provide updates as they become available.

Brendan Steele added 10 more points to his war chest in the third round of the Barracuda Championship with his bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 and now has 30 points for the tournament.

He's been incredibly consistent, securing 9 points in the first round and 11 in the second. Steele's 13'1" birdie on the par-3 16th was easily the highlight of his day. His ball-striking was stellar, splitting 11 of 14 fairways and landing 16 GIR. After securing top-10 finishes at Montrêux G&CC in each of his last two trips, he now stands poised to make a run at his second PGA TOUR title in Sunday's final round.

Brendan Steele carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 worth 11 points in his second round of the Barracuda Championship.

He shot the same score in the opening round, but collected only nine points despite six birdies. A double-bogey 7 at the 18th hole spoiled the walk. Today, Steele traded just four birdies with two bogeys, but converted an eagle at 18 to vault up the leaderboard. With 20 points, he's just six off of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Brendan Steele highlights an otherwise weak field at the Barracuda Championship.

Steele is 63rd in the FedExCup Standings, so that he is playing this week clearly demonstrates that he's chasing a victory. He tied for eighth here in 2012 and improved to fourth last season, so Montrêux G&CC and the Modified Stableford scoring system clearly fits his eye. He hasn't won a PGA TOUR event since the Valero Texas Open in his rookie season of 2011.

Brendan Steele settled for an even-par 34-37=71 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to secure a top-10 finish at 2-under 282.

Steele stepped onto the 18th tee just one off the lead in real time, and a par would have put plenty of pressure on Justin Rose as he tried to close out the victory. Instead of doing that, he blocked his drive right and hit his second shot into the drink, eventually writing down a double-bogey six. In all, he circled five birdies and squared three bogeys to go with the double. Three of those birdies were outside of 12 feet, including a 36'5" bomb at the par-4 fifth.

Brendan Steele arrived at the halfway point of the Quicken Loans National in 2-under-par 74-66=140 and sits four strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Just when it seemed that he'd fail to extend the form that led to the 18-hole lead and an eventual T5 at TPC River Highlands last week, he stumbled in the lid-lifter at Congressional. Today, he flipped the script back in his favor, hitting 14 greens in regulation and holing six birdies against a sloppy bogey at the par-4 18th where he whiffed on his par attempt from just 52 inches. The par breakers included rolls of 12'10" and 16 feet at Nos. 4 and 17, respectively.

Brendan Steele fashioned a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the Travelers Championship, taking over as the leader in the clubhouse at 12-under 268.

Steele recorded 21 par breakers on the week, offsetting those with 12 bogeys. He rolled in six putts from outside six feet on the day, including a 44'11" eagle bomb on the par-5 13th hole. The biggest story of the week for Steele was his switch to a traditional-length putter. Given these instant results, the new putter is likely here to stay. This will go down as Steele's first top 10 since the Northern Trust Open in February.

Overnight leader Brendan Steele followed his opening 62 at the Travelers Championship with a 1-under-par 36-33=69 to post 9-under 131, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

While shootouts tend to mask the fact that they're actually putting contests, even that label implies that guys are racking up greens in regulation. This isn't necessarily so. Steele hit only 11 GIR today and got up and down for par just twice, settling for bogeys on each of the other five holes. He also circled an eagle-3 at 15 and four straight birdies coming in, including rolls from 11'9" and 37'3" at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively. What's more, he was perfect on all 16 tries inside 10 feet. So, the best putter may, indeed, emerge in a shootout, but only if he's also either hitting a high number of GIR or holing putts from everywhere.
